Draw, Brush, Flow and Spatter with Watersoluble Pencils
Kristy will feature the many dimensions of this excitingly vivid, versatile, and non-toxic medium for artists of all
levels of experience. With studio demonstrations and access to a generous supply of sample materials, artists will explore a wide range of watersoluble colored pencil techniques: layering, texturizing, lifting, spattering, grating, and luscious wet-into-wet effects. Watercolor pencils, watersoluble ink-like pencils, and watersoluble wax pastels will be featured. Watersoluble drawing materials are fascinating and offer tremendous possibilities to both the drawing artist who loves fluid color and the watercolorist who enjoys the control of “pigment in a point.” Venture into colored pencil painting on a wide range of surfaces: watercolor paper, colored pastel papers, and multiple-medium art boards.
